UMATILLA, Ore. (AP) - A Umatilla man who beat another man to death three years ago has been sentenced to more time in prison after violating the conditions of his early release.
 
21-year-old Teodoro Parra Mendoza pleaded guilty Tuesday to felon in possession of a firearm. He has been ordered to serve out the remainder of his prison term for the original crime, plus 18 months.
 
Mendoza pleaded guilty to criminally negligent homicide in 2012 after beating a man to death with a baseball bat. Mendoza, who was 17 at the time, was sentenced to six years in youth prison.
 
A judge agreed to release Mendoza in June for good behavior.
 
Police then arrested him in Sept. 29 after finding him in possession of a gun.
